Fungi-licious! aka AZ Mushroom Farm is a culinary mushroom cultivation laboratory and farm in Chino Valley, AZ. Fungi-licious! cultivates and grows fresh mushrooms for chefs and families using steam – not chemicals- and supplies mushroom mycelium to help repair toxic soil and water.
Lead by Kathryn Crew, the owner of Fungi-licious! and the mushroom cultivator, attendees will learn the purpose of fungi, the connection of fungi to all living things, nature’s lifecycle of mushrooms and how mushroom farmers mimic nature followed by mushroom tasting and building a “Grow your own mushrooms” kit.
Kathryn is a member of The Arizona Farm Bureau, Slow Food – Prescott, The Northern Arizona Climate Change Alliance, and AZ Mushroom Growers Society. Recently, Kathryn performed medical research with mushroom mycelium for a global company. She is a certified dietary manager, production horticulturist, and speaker.
